"A delicious version of a classic recipe! Make sure the apples and grapes are sweet. Halve the grapes if they are very large. This salad recipe is much requested by those to whom I have served it!"

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine chicken, pineapple, Red Delicious apple, Golden Delicious apple, celery, red grapes, green grapes, and walnuts in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk milk, mayonnaise, and ranch dressing mix together in a separate bowl until well blended.
  3. Pour ranch dressing over chicken mixture; toss gently to coat.
  4. Serve salad on a bed of lettuce leaves.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I sometimes add an 11-ounce can of drained mandarin orange segments to this dish. The chopped walnuts can be toasted if one prefers. Also, I like to use red leaf lettuce for the bed.
